COMISARENCO MIRKIN, Dina. La representación de la experiencia femenina en Tina Modotti y Lola Álvarez Bravo. La ventana [online]. 2008, vol.3, n.28, pp.148-190. ISSN 1405-9436.
This text analyzes the work of Tina Modotti and Lola Álvarez Bravo from a gender perspective, emphasizing their shared iconographic repertoire: the representation of indigenous women, motherhood, childhood, portraiture, and allegories of the social status of women. Through a comparative study focusing on the historical contexts in which both artists developed their lives and careers, it concludes that in their images they expressed some of the more gratifying experiences of being a woman, while at the same time questioning others about the negative cultural stereotypes imposed upon the female gender.
